Welcome to Sky Island UU

Visit Us Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

Our Draft Mission Statement:
Sky Island Unitarian Universalist Church –

A caring community forging a compassionate, just, and sustainable world.


Our services start at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday

Sunday Service October 23:
Rev. Ron Phares
Loving the Hell Out of the World

How do you love someone you hate? How do you love when another unarmed man is killed by the state? What is love in the face of violence? What does your love look like?

 Sunday Service October 30:
Rev. Linda Lawrence
Circle of Life – Dia de Los Muertos

We will celebrate the circle of life in this multi-age service and honor some of the traditions of our Mexican neighbors and friends. Children are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes. All are invited to bring a photo or memorabilia to place upon the altars we will create to remember and celebrate loved ones who have died.

Sunday Service November 13:
Rev. Tina Squires
When Story Is Not Big Enough

Stories help us make sense of life, affirm our sense of individual identity and also help us build and preserve community. They can also limit us to one narrative or blind us to painful journeys in our lives or the lives of others. In this month of November, we will take up the challenge of a business proposal adopted at this summer’s Unitarian Universalist General Assembly,  “Thanksgiving Reconsidered,”  and explore the complex legacy of the arrival of the Mayflower almost 400 years ago.

Coffee and Refreshments, along with great conversation will be provided after every service.  Please join us!




Thursday, October 20, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Sky Island Unitarian Universalist Church Sanctuary

Presenter Moina Shaiq is President of the Interfaith Council in Fremont, California.  She will give a presentation and conduct a question and answer session to foster understanding of Muslims within the wider community.  People who have met Muslims are less likely to give into prejudice and fear against them.  During her presentation, Moina Shaiq will discuss:

  • How do Muslims practice their faith?
  • How does Islam view other religions?
  • What is Sharia law?
  • Are women oppressed in Islam?
  • What is the Islamic view of terrorism?
  • What contributed to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism?

Participants are encouraged to ask their own questions.
